Guess, what in 3 month's time or less, when the true G9x comes out it's more than likely to be at least perform 2x as fast as one 8800gtx/ultra/gts512. I think Nvidia is just trying to hype up the 8800s as much as possible so they can get the maximum amount of orders for these remaining months before the next flagship hits in 2008. Hopefully by then Crysis will be TRULY finished, and the new card will be able to run the game in all its glory. Having 3 ultra cards and barely hitting 30fps with maximum settings is quite ridiculous. Crysis has been a major disappointment not only in performance but in what the game content actually delivers (no shooting while cloaked, abrupt ending (thanks EA!), AI glitches, physic glitches, sometimes very bad AI, never getting a chance to work with your enemies, the NKA, which was promised in multiple interviews, and last but not least the engine is already "dated" in the sense that Far Cry 2's engine already has the edge over the Cryengine 2 (eg: breakable tree branches, not just at the trunk). I hope Crytek can get their stuff together, because right now I feel Crysis was a missed opportunity for them. They did not hit the mark at all like they did with Far Cry, which was so much more "awesome" when it was first released (at least the AI was much much more challenging).
